Welcome to the forums. We have a section in the forums dedicated to GIB hands. Here, North has a marginal invite. Some would do it, some wouldn't. GIB tends to invite very soundly and judged that hand wasn't an invite. Notice here you have a 17 count with a fit and a ruffing value, and 4S could still easily be down on a club ruff, and that is assuming you get the spades right.

If you think this is a sign of craziness by GIB then I say you haven't seen anything yet! Posted Image

"Well to be perfectly honest, in my humble opinion, of course without offending anyone who thinks differently from my point of view, but also by looking into this matter in a different perspective and without being condemning of one's view's and by trying to make it objectified, and by considering each and every one's valid opinion, I honestly believe that I completely forgot what I was going to say."

marginal 4S I think. Plus GIBBO normally passes 8 hcp hands unless has 5431 shape i.e. the 4 is a major and 5 is a minor.
I say marginal since 3 club losers, find sQ, and 1 heart loser. even if find sq i see 5 spade tricks, 3D and 1H.
fraught with peril.

Your hand is too strong for a 1 NT opening- it is really 18 HCP. Open 1 NT at your peril.

K&R evaluator http://www.jeff-gold...cgi-bin/knr.cgi
K&R (A832 AJ Q842 AQ9) = 16.35
These are soft values 1N is fine.
You may want to upgrade to a 2N rebid as many people do purposely overbid NT hands with Gib but that is up to you.
